A picturesque escape to Amangiri Resort in Utah with Kendra Scott x Who What Wear. 

I feel very lucky to be able to travel often, and though every trip is special in its own way, I recently took one of the most memorable of my life. I visited Amangiri, Utah, and words can't describe what a trip this was. Amangiri is a secluded, ultra-lux, and modern hotel that's built into the stunning rocks of rural Utah. This place has been on my bucket list ever since I saw photos on IG years ago, and it did NOT disappoint!

I went with the Kendra Scott team, Who What Wear, Be Social PR, and Foray Collective, and my girls @sophieelkus, @kaitlynn_carter, and @littleblackboots. Foray + Be Social coordinated most of the trip, and WWW acted as an editorial partner since they'llbepublishing a piece on our trip soon! I also just signed to be a social influencer with Be Social, and I'm thrilled to be part of that team. This whole experience was amazing to be included on!

Pulling up to the hotel—after a 5-hour car ride from Vegas, that's how secluded it is!—we felt like we were on Mars. It was jaw-droppingly gorgeous. My favorite part was the pool, especially the shallow area that surrounded a huge natural rock with seating. We learned that the hotel was all-inclusive (cue lots of amazing food, including delish vegetarian options, + prickly pear margs (which are the pretty pink drinks in the photos)!

The first night, we attended the Kendra Scott x Who What Wear Dinner. The Kendra Scott Fall '16 Collectionwas inspired by the wild outdoors and natural stones, so thejewelry paired perfectly with theUtah atmosphere. The KS team set up a long, wooden table underneath the stars, surrounded by the mountains. The rustic table heldbeautifulfloral arrangements, candles, and jewelry from the collection.

The best part of the night was a METEOR SHOWER during dinner! It was super low to the ground, a slow and sparkling 15-second flash. It was incredibly stunning and we were speechless. I was lucky to get a video of it on Snapchat (P.S. I'm only using Instagram stories now!). I'll never forget that dinner.

The next day, we started with a Kendra Scott brunch where we got to create custom jewelry by setting our own stones. I chose to make a silver ring with a white druzy stone thatI absolutely LOVE. After making our pieces, we had the opportunity to make a custom piece (+ a handwritten note) for women fighting breast cancer. This was extra special for me since both my grandma and mom have cancer. Such a sweet touch by the KS team. 

We alsovisited the spa and got mani/pedis with Kendra Scott's new polish collection. We then gotmassages which were SO relaxing. Jill and I may also have spent time laying in our bed with room service staring at our mountainviews. We followed that up by pool time. Ahhhhhh! Then we got the chance to visit Lake Powell for boat rides and stopped at some rock formations and jumping points to take photos. 

The final day we were so sad to leave, but managed more pool time before heading out. And we had to fit in a few more margaritas! 

I really hope that I get to revisit Amangiri, as the trip was simplymagical. I'm also excited to see the editorial of the trip go live on Who What Wear soon—keep an eye out!
